£200 = ? USD. Sorry...

Have you had any experience with other scanners, like AGFA and ACER? What do you think, and how are the prices comparing to yours?

-Thanks

£200 is about $300 but consumer prices are usually better in the US, so it is hard to compare

I DON’T regret buying the Mustek III EP scanner.
   It costs $139, and I love the following about it:
  .It's fast as hell, scans at resolutions from  72dpi to 9600dpi, scales from 100% to 600%, came with decent and easily understandable software, and has worked like a trooper, dozens of scans a day for the last 9 months without a single problem of any kind.
